The Office of Equity and Civil Rights Compliance ensures that the University maintains an employment and educational environment that is free from discrimination and harassment. ECRC does this by monitoring the educational environment and workplace to stop, remediate, and prevent discrimination on the basis of protected status, making policy recommendations, offering training, and by providing avenues for the resolution of grievances which are based on protected status. This includes discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, age, national origin, national ancestry, sex, pregnancy, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, military service or veteran status, mental or physical disability, or genetic information.

ECRC supports the University's efforts to foster a diverse student body and workforce; therefore ECRC often collaborates with campus partners who have responsibilities for those efforts, such as the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Office for Equal Opportunity and Accessibility.

The ECRC office houses the university Title IX Coordinator.
